ith all the different careers out there, it can be 
very hard to choose one that is right for you. Once 
you choose one, how do you know that you will be 
happy with it for the rest of your life? There are some 
questions that you can ask yourself when you have 
found a job that you are interested in. 

"I want to be an elementary school teacher 
because I love children and have been around them 
for a long time from babysitting," Amanda Dixon, 
Junction City freshman, says. "I could get a job just 
about anywhere because teachers are always needed." 

The first thing you need to consider is the day 
to day tasks that your career will require and if you 
will enjoy doing those things. Decide whether you 
like working on a routine or on a flexible schedule. 
Also, you need to find a job that you will find 
rewarding. If you don't find the job fulfilling, you 
will want out pretty quick. Figure out how much 
schooling you will need for your career as well. 

Another thing you should think about is how 
much responsibility you want and how closely you 
want to be supervised. Do you want to be your own

boss, or have someone that you work under and must 
report to? Also consider how well you work with oth- 
ers. Some jobs don't involve working with others, 
while some require a lot of people skills. 

One very important factor in choosing a career 
is the amount of money you will be able to make. 
Even with the best salary, a person may not like their 
job, but the money certainly helps out. 

There are many high paying jobs that are 
offered to students right out of college. This list of top 
ten job offers, provided by www.JobWeb.com, was 
compiled from college students with bachelor's 
degrees. 

"I have taken Accounting I and am taking 
Accounting II because I think I want to become an 
accountant," Kali Taylor, Augusta sophomore, says. 
"I like math and working with numbers, and account- 
ants get paid pretty good," 

No matter what career path you take, it's 
important that it works for you. Research your 
options and you will have a much better chance at 
being satisfied with your career.

very day millions of children are abandoned, 
abused, neglected or have run away from home. Lost, 
thinking that they have nowhere to go and no one 
who cares. Scared, not knowing what to do. 
Forgetting that there are a tremendous amount of peo- 
ple out there that do care and are willing to help a 
child in need. 

Angie Pratt, a former student at Butler, works 
with the lives of children every day. 

Pratt works with Youthville, a non-profit 
agency, that deals with children's welfare. As a Foster 
Care Recruiter for Youthville, Pratt's job is to get 
their name out into the community to find potential 
foster parents. 

A couple of different ways Pratt works on get- 
ting Youthville's name out into the community is by 
setting up informational booths at fairs and local 
events or performing speaking engagements. After 
getting parents in the door she works with them so 
they can obtain their license which allows them to 
foster a child in need of a loving family and home. 

"I know that every day I walk in the door at 
Youthville, I am bringing a child one step closer to a 
home with a loving family," Pratt says. 

After the children are in the hands of 
Youthville, they do what ever they can to give the 
children a loving, supportive family and a place to 
call home. The staff works hard to give all the chil- 
dren back what they deserve, a childhood they can

call their own. 

For over 100 years Youthville has provided 
their services to youths ages ten to 18. They have res- 
idential campuses in both Newton and Dodge City. 

There are many other ways to get involved 
other than fostering a child as well. You can show you 
care with volunteering, donations or becoming an 
advocate.

Q 

^„ * oing out with someone new or someone old 
can be a fun and relaxing part of the week, but where 
is there to go? There is always the usual McDonald's 
and then watching a movie, but every once in awhile 
something different would a nice change of pace. 
Some of the more exciting places to go during the 
winter around El Dorado and Andover would include 
the bowling alley, the roller skating rink, the art 
museum, YMCA, Stooges, Timbuktu and Blue 
Bunny Ice Cream. Andover has a special event com- 
ing up in December called, "A Hometown 
Christmas." 

All of these places are all located in or around 
El Dorado. The skating rink has recently renovated 
the floor, giving couples a more wonderful experience 
of rolling in hand with one another. The YMCA holds 
indoor sport activities for all those couples who are 
athletically inclined and enjoy a little competition 
between one another. 

In Andover, restaurants such as Stooges, 
Timbuktu and the Blue Bunny Ice Cream are all one 
of a kind. Stop into Stooges for a night of pool and 
other entertainment. 

Then travel right into the town of Andover for 



Story by Krystal Walker 

the annual, "Hometown Christmas." This event holds 
many activities such as Santa coming to town, chili 
cookoffs, bonfires with marshmallow roasting and 
even if you are not an Andover resident everyone is 
welcome to come out and attend. 

It may be winter, but being stuck indoors all 
day is not making the most of dating experiences. 
Many college students have already had their trial 
and tribulations of dates. 

"For a date that I went on one time I was 
asked to go to Barnes and Noble and the entire time 
he talked to this book he was looking at," Stephanie 
Brandt, Wichita sophomore, says. 

At one time or another everyone has been on 
a date that they would like to forget. However, there 
are also dates that should want to be remembered for 
the rest of our lives. 

"One of my best dating experiences was after 
watching a movie we went to the park and talked 
until six in the morning,"Jamie Bailey, Leon fresh- 
man, says. 

With that being said Butler students go out 
and enjoy the wintertime to do something different 
and make new experiences.

Jessica Baker, Augusta freshman, 
not only plays for Butler on a band scholar-

own. 

Chozen Dead is a Christian rock

and old. 

"We play worship music for church- 
es, youth groups, banquets and special 
events," Baker says. "We are what you 
might call a rock worship team." 

Along with performing and hard 
work, there is always fun to be found, espe- 
cially on road trip performances. 

"We have a blast," Baker says. "Of 
course we go out and eat... it is a tradition 
to eat at On The Border."

2000. 

Found on Gizzmo's myspace, 
Salcedo talked about his stage name. 

"Many people ask 'why gizzmo?' and 
I just tell tell 'em that it's like the perfect 
fix, or the perfect gadget, to the game," 
Salcedo says. "Just call me the gadget man." 

He has played at Butler for a United 
Way benefit concert, and a Concert in the 
Courtyard, both held in October. 

He will leave in January of 2007 to 
kick off the first Kansas College Tour in

f his year's show was not only amazing, but a 
hit. The show ran from Oct. 5-7 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 8 
at 3 p.m. 

"Bye, Bye Birdie's" storyline is that a singer, 
Conrad Birdie, played by Daniel Conely, is going off 
to the Army. In an effort to boost his career as a 
singer, his agent Albert Peterson, played by sopho- 
more Brandon Muhlhausen, along with his secretary 
Rosie Alvarez, played by freshman Kacey Armbruster, 
stage "One Last Kiss." 

The last kiss would involve one lucky teenage 
girl whom is hopelessly in love with Conrad. Kim 
MacAfee, played by freshman Lauren Rust, is the 
lucky girl chosen to be kissed. 

Throughout the show, many obstacles stand in 
the way of the kiss happening. From Kim's steady, 
Hugo Peabody, played by freshman Seth Hatfield, to 
Albert's mother, Mae Peterson, played by Ms. 
Michelle Banks. 



Brandon Muhlhausen and Kacey Armbruster 
both have outstanding acting and vocal skills, and 
amazing chemistry as well. 

Lauren Rust shined with her singing and 
amazed me how well she fit the part of Kim 
MacAfee. Kim's parents, Mr. and Mrs. MacAfee, 
played by Mr. Bob Peterson and Mrs. Kelly 
Wonsetler, were hilarious when they brought their 
"parental views" to the stage. 

The most breathtaking star would have to be 
Ms. Michelle Banks. She had the audience laughing 
throughout all of her scenes. 

The best scene in the entire show would have 
to be Scene 2, which featured the song, "Telephone 
Hour." In it, the teenagers sing about how Kim just 
got pinned by Hugo. These students gave it their all 
and it was completely worthwhile. 

If you missed this show, then you missed a 
wonderful performance.

Anyone who has a cell phone has at one point dropped it 
on the ground or in some sort of liquid substance. 
Whatever the case, before you spend that hefty chunk of 
change on a new phone, here are some helpful tips to 
reviving a cell phone. 




16 




Apparently, electricity and water 
don't mix. Take the battery out as 
soon as possible and do not have 
the battery in place while doing 
the tips below. 





Simply set your phone in front of an air conditioner 
unit overnight. 




Soak your phone in 95 percent alcohol, then leave 
it outside for at least 24 hours to dry. This should 
dissolve any liquid trapped inside. If you choose 
this method, don't try any other tips along with it. 




To help dry the unwanted liquid in your phone, 
try letting it sit in a bowl of dry rice. 




As silly as it sounds, stick the phone in the 
oven at about 150 degrees. Make sure the 
battery has been removed. 




After waiting three days, put the battery back on 
and test your phone. At this point, if it still doesn't 
work it might be time to burn a hole in your pocket 
and buy a new cell phone.

Tip 



s on 



gifts 



For college students, buying gifts for everyone can be an enormous task. 
Especially if you are on a tight budget. Making gifts and bargain shopping 
is a great way to give without emptying your pockets. 



1 





Use inexpensive things to create gift packs, such as chocolate candies wrapped in col- 
orful cellophane and placed inside a holiday coffee mug. It's cheap and it can be an 
idea to use with all your friends so that everyone is getting the same thing. 

BAKE, BAKE, BAKE! Everyone loves baked goods and the ingredients go a long 
way. To wrap buy a festive plastic plate or serving tray and wrap in colorful cello- 
phane. Anything edible is usually a hit. 

Buy already made gift packs from stores, open and distribute the contents between 
those to whom you are giving. Buying them together is significantly cheaper.

inals week is usually a good and bad time for 
students. It's the end of a semester, however it's also 
the last chance to get the grade they have been work- 
ing towards for the last 16 weeks. 

"I personally like finals. They are the end to 
completing the course which only gets you that much 
closer to completing your degree, "Adam Van Fleet, El 
Dorado sophomore, says. "If you just study and apply 
yourself, you can pass with a breeze." 

This week is a very stressful time for most 
students. Having all the tests in a period of one week 
can be a lot of pressure on students. 

"I think finals week is overrated, everyone 
gets so stressed out and worried," Sarah Young, 
Augusta sophomore, says. "It's not the end of the 
world." 

Once finals week starts, the class times are no 
longer in session and a new schedule is designed for 
finals week. The new class times are much more 



spread out and are two hours in length. The schedule 
is set up to give students a two hour time period to 
take and finish the final. 

To try and ease some of the pressures that 
come with finals week, the Grizzly Ambassadors have 
put together small care packages for students. For 
nearly three years the Ambassadors have sent out 
order forms to parents of all Butler students. 

There are two different kinds of packages that 
can be purchased for $15 each. Each package has its 
own options of what will be included. 

The Health Nut package contains bottled 
water, tea or juice as well as trail mix, gum and mints. 
The Junk Food Junkie package includes your choice 
of pop, cookies and a candy bar. Both packages come 
with pencils and pens and some type of stress ball. 

"We make anywhere around 1 00 care pack- 
ages each semester," Jamee Farmer, Augusta sopho- 
more, says.

Improving Jutler 

__jj __^J Story by Doris Huffman 



A 

/ \/ s many people have noticed there have been a 
few changes on the Butler campuses. The school has 
been putting up sculptures and other various types of 
art inside and out to improve the appearance at 
Butler. 

There will be a total of five up around the 
Butler of El Dorado campus. In October there was a 
piece put up in the main lobby of Andover's 5000 
building. 

Butler and people in the community thought 
that the college needed to expand on its visual 
appearance. 

The funding came from a few different places. 
The main source was the Butler Alumni Foundation. 
They set up a fundraiser that was very successful and 
paid for four of the five sculptures. 

The other was donated to the school by Cliff 



Stone. It was the first piece that was placed in the 
2005-2006 school year. This was placed outside to 
the south of the 200 building. Frank Jensen of El 
Dorado is the artist. 

Now comes the question how do they pick the 
artwork they buy? There is a seven person selection 
committee that picks the art they want to buy and 
decides on where it should be permanently placed. 

However, they do ask the artist, if they are 
still living, what kind of background they think the 
piece should have. The committee is mostly made up 
of people that are not associated with Butler with the 
exception of the Lead Art instructor Valerie 
Haring. 

As of now there are three sculptures located 
outside the student union. The others are by the 200 
building and down by the 500 building. 



Butler's motto. "Pure. 
Learning. Power...." is the 
artist's statement that hangs 
on a plaque by the art 
piece.

Linking with Butler. Butler Community College and RadioShack have combined forces to help students receive a 
Marketing and Management Associates of Science degree. The program is open to all RadioShack employees who 
have completed the Management Training Program.

utler Community College has joined forces 
with RadioShack to help students receive a Marketing 
and Management Associates of Science degree. 

According to Jim Edwards, Dean of Business, 
"A partnership with a corporation like RadioShack is 
very exciting and innovative." 

The program is open to any RadioShack 
employees, but they first have to meet a few basic cri- 
teria. First, they must complete the Management 
Training Program through RadioShack and provide a 
certificate of completion. 

With proof of this, Butler will record nine 
credit hours on the student transcript in Personal 
Selling, Merchandising and Principles of 
Management. They must then complete 1 5 hours 
from Butler in any delivery method including co- 
operative education, online or traditional classroom. 

David Brod, an Applied Science major with an 
emphasis on Business Management at Butler, says 
this co-operative program is a useful part of his edu- 
cation. 

"Combining elements of my job with the 
learning helps me better understand my job," he says. 

Edwards says that the whole program is online 
but students may take courses at their local accredited 
community college and transfer those credits in. 

Reasons RadioShack employees participate in 
this program vary. Management personnel work many 
hours, making it hard to complete a degree. Flexibility 
in online classes allows them to fit it into their busy 
days. 

"Our arrangement allows them to complete a

degree online when they can work it into their sched- 
ule," Edwards says. "We have students in the program 
coast to coast." 

A major incentive of the program is having 
tuition and fees paid for. This includes online fees. 
Books, however, aren't covered. 

"I think the program is great," Edwards says. 
"Butler is about opening up opportunities and access 
to students, which makes this program really fit into 
the mission of Butler. This program serves as a model 
for corporate degrees at Butler which is a new and 
exciting frontier for further expansion."
